    Default Calling All Angels................

    To each of us who have suffered today, to each of you who had a smile lead the way.........to those who rejoiced in a pain free night and to those who saw the light...........


    CALLING ALL ANGELS - JANE SIBERRY

    Santa Maria, Santa Teresa, Santa Anna, Santa Susannah
    Santa Cecilia, Santa Copelia, Santa Dominica, Mary Angelica
    Frater Achad, Frater Pietro, Julianus, Petronella
    Santa, Santos, Miroslaw, Vladimir
    and all the rest

    a man is placed upon the steps, a baby cries
    and high above the church bells start to ring
    and as the heaviness the body
    oh the heaviness settles in
    somewhere you can hear a mother sing

    then it's one foot then the other
    as you step out onto the road
    how much weight? how much weight?
    then it's how long? and how far?
    and how many times before it's too late?

    calling all angels
    calling all angels
    walk me through this one
    don't leave me alone
    calling all angels
    calling all angels
    we're cryin' and we're hurtin'
    and we're not sure why...

    and every day you gaze upon the sunset
    with such love and intensity
    why it's...it's almost as if
    if you could only crack the code
    then you'd finally understand what this all means

    but if you could...do you think you would
    trade it in
    all the pain and suffering?
    ah, but then you'd miss
    the beauty of the light upon this earth
    and the sweetness of the leaving

    calling all angels
    calling all angels
    walk me through this one
    don't leave me alone
    callin' all angels
    callin' all angels
    we're tryin'
    we're hopin'
    we're hurtin'
    we're lovin'
    we're cryin'
    we're callin'
    'cause we're not sure how this goes
    As I grow to understand life less and less,
    I learn to love it more and more.

    Oh, that was absolutely beautiful and actually brought tears to my eyes. I am still on vacation and just popped in for a moment to say hello to everyone. Reading the poem that you shared was so perfect for me as I thanked GOD for another day without worsening symptoms.

    I love you all very much and it was a pleasure to share something with you that inspires me to pick myself up and keep going. Just knowing I made you all smile makes me feel so complete tonight. Hang in there everyone. This IS a fight worth fighting
    As I grow to understand life less and less,
    I learn to love it more and more.
